I tried to do all solids today, but couldn't think of a good solid tie.  Navy would be too matchy.  I wore my green tie on Saturday.  Red would have been too bright.  I think dark brown would have clashed with my belt/shoes.  Any recs?

I think the tie is fine (and congruent with your style), it's the matching lapel flower that makes the fit look contrived

@An Acute Style I just got me an orange tie too. nod[1].gif Hope it ends up lookin' snazzy.

@An Acute Style
I have a rust grenadine tie that would look similar to the orange tie and fit your all solids look. But I like that orange one as it brightens up the look

That's why I sometimes hate to leave the house for a couple of days (fishing trip this time); when I get back, I have so much catching up to do on SF it's mind-boggling.

Ac, you have on my SF's top 3 of 3-piece suits wearer. I always like your CBS style! But above all, I need to know more about that wine collection you feature on most of your shoe shots!

As I've always said, you need to wear suits more often, definitively suits you! I would've worn different socks tho!

Very nice shoes, Crat! Went on my first 'real' fishing trip this week-end, but sure as hell wasn't as stylish as you doing so!

Happy to be told otherwise!

I don t know. I never really gave it that much thought. I also have a peak lapel tweed jacket. I think peak lapels were more ubiquitous backe in the earlier eras but I just like the look. I think it can be done carefully. Ymmv.

I agree 100% with these gentlemen.
Great look, AAS. If you really want to get rid of all patterns, a muted orange would be fine though I think you can pull of a brighter shade as well.

Thanks man, too kind.

 

@AAS -  Who r u ^^ and what have u done with the real AAS.  Loving your restraint in your recent posts.

Looks good, AAS.

DONT TEMP HIM, PLINY!

An orange tie with a dark or mid-blue jacket is a beautiful combination.  And versatile:  ‘Orange’ is a big category, so if you want a less bold look you can go for ‘burnt orange’, which tends toward the brown side of the orange spectrum; if you want a bold look, as here, that’s fine too.

 

AAS’s use of the tie in this case is lovely.   And jcmeyer’s tie looks good, too—I look forward to seeing it with a shirt and jacket at some point.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Ah, a man with his priorities straight.  Mostly French and northern Italian.
